I want to move my supply and possibly split gas and electricity between two different suppliers.
I know there are still two meters, but currently only one top up amount.
I am no longer happy with Boost, but like the easy ways to top up online. So am considering keeping maybe the gas on PAYG and moving the ELECTRICITY to pay monthly. Or it could be the other way around. It could also be with two totally new energy providers who can do this.

Its a shame to hear you're considering leaving Boost, however we encourage everyone to make sure they are getting the best for them. Is there's anything in particular that's making you feel this way about Boost?
In relation to having your gas and electric supplied by different providers this is something you have control over. When you go to switch to another's provider they will ask whether you wish to transfer provision of one or both utilities to them. You maintain full control over who "supplies" either fuel.
One thing though: you can't have PAYG+ with just gas. If you want to top up online or via the app with Boost, you will need to keep the electricity on supply with Boost. What you could do is switch the gas to another supplier on a Pay Monthly tariff. Boost won't let you switch from PAYG to Pay monthly as the sign up process is different: https://forum.boostpower.co.uk/smart-payg-5/can-i-change-from-pay-as-you-go-payg-to-pay-monthly-paym-credit-45.
You mention when you move suppliers you are seeking a credit meter - just a word of advice some provider says may charge to upgrade from a PAYG meter so keep an eye out for any extra charges that they may apply. If you have smart meters, then it should be free to change to Pay monthly with a different supplier.
Hope this helps
